Nice Tail!

Does this belong to anyone?

Does this belong to anyone?

sqturday squirrel logoMy Mom always said when I was a baby some untold centuries ago that I would be prone to sticking one of my legs out of the crib while I slept.  I couldn’t help but think of that embarrassing mother’s tale when I took this picture a couple weeks ago of a squirrel who gave me this great shot of him sticking his tail out from underneath the fence in my backyard.  Maybe he spotted me taking pictures and, like myself, he’s a bit camera shy and doesn’t want the whole world to see his mug on my blog?

Come on, buddy!  Step out from under there and let my sciurine lovers from across the world ooh and aah over you!

Shall I take a bow for my audience?

Then again, maybe this squirrel isn’t an introvert after all and just has a fetish where he likes sticking his tail through the fence.  Here’s a picture of the same squirrel taken just before these last two pictures…

If you had a big bushy tail, you;d probably do the same thing too...

Just when you thought I had already exploited every possible way these critters could be cute in my Saturday Squirrel feature, I give you a double dose of squirrel tail sticking though a fence!  After three plus years of weekly features, there’s still no end in sight to the adorability of our fuzzy arboreal friends!

Have a great final weekend of 2015 everyone!

  1. What a darling little guy. My cats do that too.

    How adorable! Those fence boards must not be as close together as they appear in the picture or the little guy would still be there. Doing cute things like this is how my squirrels get crazy names. When I saw the tail wedged in between those fence boards I immediately thought of the name Wedgie. 🙂

    • That would be a great squirrel name if I could pick him out again! My neighbor’s tree on the other side of that fence has more squirrel activity than even mine does… and I’m pretty sure he isn’t one who appreciates the little critters. I guess if he ever decides to bring it down like he did the tree in his front yard, his sciurine apartment complex will all move in with me…

  3. What a handsome furry fellow! And a very impressive tale … and tail!

    • I racked my brain for literally minutes trying to think of a good tale/tail pun for the title of this post and came up empty. Heck, for once I couldn’t even think of a good song reference, and I’m usually good at that…

  4. Awww!!!! A very cute critter AND tail. 😀

  5. Very cute! I love when they use their tails like an umbrella too. Kinda wish I had a tail like a squirrel. Very versatile. 🙂
